:P It’s cute! I hope there’ll be lots of fluff and smut. I need some happy feelings surrounding my OTP. The last 1/4 of the series is too angsty as it is.

I might be wrong but I thought it's the same scene where ZM and WJ sat in front of the farmer hut in the evening,  just the coloring/edit make it brighter (as if in the daylight) and more zoomed?

So apparently, for TVB episode 28, they deleted the scene of WJ looking at golden box/thinking of ZM, but extended the duelling between WJ and FY.  Seems TVB version is getting good reviews for restoring the deleted wuxia/fight scenes:)

I am all for more wuxia/kung fu scenes!!

 

Although, I personally feel the scene of Wuji remembering his and MM encounter while looking at the box should not be cut as it was quite impactful to build foundation of his deep attraction and feeling for her. 

 

I was thinking, I remembered in the sshaolin scene when XX has been rescued out of the pit from the three monks, when he heard ZZR,  the way he said her name at that time make me wonder,  perhaps in the uncut version he knew of her bad deeds?  The way he say her name initially seemed quite angry.

@jackieusa I think XX is usurped by ZM since early on.

If you have time to make the gifs, when XX was not in the inn WJ should be suspicious/worried since XX is the most wanted man of the wulin, dead or alive, but because he was busy having lover's quarrel with ZM, I don't think he was thinking clearly. He keeps chasing after ZM lol

After crashing the wedding ZM is also the one who keep asking him to keep going since she know WJ is worried about XX and she keep urging them to carry on the journey to go to shaolin but WJ is the the one who keep stalling to wait until ZM is healed.

 

For the last gifs I would say that's unfair to XX, a parents death it's a natural order of life, especially for an adult WJ, maybe when he was a child a parents' death is the biggest sadness a child could experience, and also XX died protecting a person that he thought is going the wrong way I think he accepted his death. As an adult if you follow your parents to death after they died, I think your parents will be the saddest one.

 

While ZM for WJ it felt like it's his fault for failing to protect her and letting ZM being alone in this life and afterlife, and ZM died for falling in love with him and being an unfilial child to her family. Even if ZM went to hell for that WJ will accompany her

 

Edit:

I would also like to add, It's also a bit unfair to ask the question, who is more important, your wife (ZM) or your parents (XX) to anybody, since they are two different entities and two different rank of people in a person's life. ZM can ask that to WJ and WJ can answer so confidently it's just proof that WJ only think ZR as a friend in need, but XX's wellbeing is still more important

I agree I'm making a unfair comparison.  ZM and XX are two differences person and two totally differences kinds of love for WJ.  I guess I just wanted to make a point that with post ZM appearance had caused such a big impacted in WJ's life, and the choices of life he want to live or follow if neither one of them hurt or dead.  I'm pretty sure WJ will do all his best or even give up his life if he have to just to protect both of them, and I don't think he ever want to choose just one between them.   For me in HSDS storyline, WJ's journey almost always involved WJ looking searching for his godfather once he become Ming Cult. Leader.  From Snake Island to XX being kidnapped by CK to rescuing mission at Shaolin.  Just happened to be in his journey he met and found his true love.  LOL...now that I think of it, WJ did a crappy job as a Ming Cult Leader.  Beside making peaces and saving the six big sects. from ZM and also able to make the Ming Sect internal conflicts under control.  He basically running around searching for XX and dealing with his personal love affairs.

 

PEACE ALL!!   These are just my personal humble opinion.

That’s my one beef with this show. All other versions had Xie Xun figure out ZZR was behind the crimes on the island and they nearly had an altercation before the beggar clan came to capture them. That’s why ZZR is so hellbent on winning the fights at Shaolin so she could kill XX. All this got skipped. When ZR told WJ what happened before they got captured “your godfather suddenly went crazy and didn’t recognize me and nearly attacked me, then suddenly I felt dizzy and came to at beggar clan’s place” (something like that), I really thought they were going there... but then nothing. This plot would also make XX’s sacrifice for ZR make sense, but since they didn’t do this his death has no impact I find because I don’t understand it. I wonder if this was one of the plot points they cut.

I really love the extended fighting scene between WJ and FY but disappointed that they cut out WJ looking at the golden box.  Why they choose to cut out that scene when they can cut out other scene?  So frustrating!  Oh well, we just have to combined both versions together.  I'm still happy to find the TVB version added those tiny itsy bitsy scenes so we can keep looking forward to it.

Thanks!  There'll be fluff and soft-smut and some funny ZhouDian (who is rapidly becoming my favorite POV character!) :) But yes, it's mostly silly fun with a hint of reincarnation angst!

Can anyone suggest to me some fan fiction (Eng preferably) for WJ-MinMin-Crown Prince (or any other suitors). I watched the previous versions, and I really like that they added in the Crown Prince story to it. 

 

Anyway, I was thinking for my gifted and talented fan fic writer friends out there - you should do a fan fiction about the handkerchief. I wish I'm good in writing so I have to live my dreamworld through you guys!

Is this show good? has alot of replies here. 

Imho, yes it's very good, even though the front half could be a slog in some part. It also suffered overused of slow-mo in earlier episodes. If you don't know anything about HSDS I would recommend you watch from the beginning, especially now that the english sub is available in YT. It is a very good adaptation of a classix wuxia novel. If by episode 24 you still don't like it then you can drop it, I know it seems like a ridiculous request to ask a person to watch until halfway, but that's when one of the most important character show up.

 

Cheers, hope it helps ^_^

Okay after watching the FY and WJ extended fight, I am pissed!!! Why didn't they just cut the useless Er Mei daily life, ZR cooking, SQS love life stuffs, even the early Wu dang uncle and child WJ stuff also, aarrrggh!!

Why did they cut WJ's line in the mainland, where he said "Lend it to him"? Just by adding this one line for WJ it changed the whole dynamic, it showed that WJ is the leader, it give WJ a different aura as Jiao Zhu. If WJ didn't say that YX wouldn't give  the sword, aaarrgggh!!! :angry:

Also by doing that awesome movement where WJ took back the sword it gives a whole different gravitas, that WJ already lend it to FY now he's taking it back, it showed, I'M STRONGER THAN YOU, I don't need a sword just the scabbard to shut you down. AARRRGHHH!!!! :tired:

Agree with prev poster that this series is really enjoyable,  well at least for me as well. 

 

 I really like this version although I have several gripes (the slo-mo at the beginning, the rush ending,  the editing in the last couple episodes), but overall very decent adaption. Love the "clean" and brighter setting (pleasant to the eyes) and softer coloured and flowy costumes after being presented with heavier fabric, rich colours in the palace drama lately.

 

I've watched other versions: 86, 2000 (TVB),  2009, with 2003 and 94 (not completely) and jet li's movie version. I got to say this is my favorite followed by 86 and 2000. This version deviates quite a distance from the novel but the storyline works for me. I can only imagine if this series will be even better if they can broadcast the complete episodes. They seem to pay good attention to this series,  a pity they have to cut down quite a number of episodes that diminish the overall quality. Still very good though. 

 

I am going to gush about the casts. They are great despite being young and quite new. This is my favorite Wuji p(the main male protagonist) and Zhao Min (the main female protagonist). Their chemistry is just sizzling hot and it gives a deeper feeling when I watched. 

 

For those who are new to this series or If this is your first time watching, I just want to say that  not everyone is as they seem in the surface so hold your opinions on any of the characters till the end hahaha. 

 

Spoiler

(perhaps this can be spoilery I would say hold your judgment on the characters till you've watched the whole/to the later episodes as the ones seemingly kind and good are more judgmental and not necessarily good while the so-called enemy is not necessarily bad.  The goods can commit worse crimes than those they branded as evil. 

 

Also agree that they shouldn't cut ZM-WJ scenes.  I wouldnt cut small WJ and Wudang uncles scenes as well since it build nice foundations as to why he really cares about his Wudang family, and why their acceptance of ZM would mean the world to him (hence he asked her to offer a cup of tea for his uncles). 

 

I would rather they cut the earlier scenes in Emei where ZR cooked. I felt it is not crucial to the storyline at all (no offense to ZR fans y'all). Sometimes I cannot help myself thinking, why did they cut the main leads scenes while keeping thr 2ndary lead scenes that really not that impactful to the overall storyline. Seriously, sometimes I couldn't help wondering if Someone in the prod team must like ZR so much hahaha. 

 

Peace all.  No offense or ill intention whatsoever please 

:mrgreen:
